For one time only, in honor of Renters Week, we're ceding "the marketplace" to the renter. There's a specific temptation in Bronzeville that's earned our attention. Built in 2006, the 5-bed contempo has a strange modularity going for it with a block-like assembly and goofy external partition. Whether or not this registers as positive curb appeal, the interiors are bound to impress. The 3,000-square-foot home has hardwood floors, glass block windows, three-and-a-half baths, pair of fireplaces, balcony, and a deck. There's also a decent backyard and a garage. The home first sold for $534K, then returned to market this spring for $485K. The listing was removed last week and brought back as a rental for $2,800/month.
